While she was cutting my hair into her latest creation, my stylist was telling me about her children. She wasn’t pleased with them and it came across in the steady, sharp “snip” of the scissors. She would stop occasionally, telling me she needed to calm down before she got caught up in her anger. For the whole time she was cutting my hair, i had a wee bit of fear. This hair cut would no be a warm, soothing cut.
Now what is a person to do when your cut starts out okay and then your stylist starts becoming angry? Do you leave part way through, or close your eyes nd hope for the best? Given my schedule, I stayed and closed my eyes, not wanting to see potential carnage until it was over. Of course when she was finished it looked okay. It was different from how she planned to do it, it still worked.
I was taught that personal issues should never be brought to work. I had assumed t as so that you gave work your dedicated attention for the time they are paying you. But now I realize it can be for more reasons that. It can be a matters of safety for some lines of work. It can be a case of being emotionally well enough to be at work.
sure we are taught you work unless sick/injured, it as yourself, at what cost? If your mind can’t focus, if your emotions ar are l over the map, you well enough? Hopefully companies can ge behind this because it surely impacts productivity.
